I bought this from @Sithian, the original owner. Excellent condition other than minor wear as mentioned below. Fantastic bass and extremely versatile. I just want to try out some other tone woods. I could be open to other MTD’s, Sadowsky, Fodera or vintage Fenders. Otherwise $4,100 + shipping. Original hard case included. Here is a sample of its tone: . bass boosted 10%, mids cut 10% until the solo where they were boosted 10%. Pickups split evenly. Running through an Aguilar AG700 which was flat (with deep button engaged) and direct out to board.

    Don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions!

    here is the original post from @Sithian :

    “Meet MTD #1990, built in 2010 and in excellent condition. I cannot say enough about how good this bass sounds and plays. I am the original owner, and I bought the bass when Mike first started using makore as a body wood. I was trying to achieve a bass with tones for use in a variety of styles, a workhorse, and the makore was recommended. This wood combination nails the tone goal in spades. There is an inherent heft to this bass's voice and you can dial in a broad tonal palette with a turn of the knob.

    The details:

    One Piece Quilted Sapele Top- Deep, Detailed Quilted
    Makore Body- Gorgeous Iridescent Quality
    Maple Neck
    Madagascar Rosewood Fingerboard (24 fret)
    MTD World Logo
    Luninlay Glow-in-the-Dark Fret Markers
    11.1 Pounds on the Bathroom Scale (sits very comfortably)
    18mm String Spacing

    I take very good care of my gear. For the sake of disclosure, I will note that there is a scratch on the bridge from a slip of the screwdriver when intonating it. Also some light wear on the tuners, pickup covers, and one of the knobs. There is also a miniscule nick on the headstock, very small and not noticeable in the photo. None of these things are noticeable unless you are looking for flaws. Otherwise the bass is immaculate.”

    I forgot to mention I had the ramp installed by Michael Tobias after purchasing the bass.
